    One thing driving me crazy in Android is if you start typing say in a search box (like in market, maps, etc.) and you see a choice that is almost what you want, you cannot select it and modify it.

    For example, I accidentally type pinboll in market. It finds nothing. I start to type pin again, there is pinboll. There seems to be no way to select that and be able to change the one letter. I have to retype the whole thing. Am I missing something?

    I've come across this issue myself. It can be very annoying at times, tho a very brief annoyance that lasts for about 2-3 seconds. I just learned to spell what I want better :)

    I agree with the OP - it would be great to select a previous entry, and then modify it before you click on "search"... a minor UI change but a huge benefit to users.
